will be recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, i rise today in strong support of the nuclear energy sector, not only do nuclear power plants provide affordable, reliable and clean energy, they also provide many quality high-paying jobs and are the backbone of many communities. my district is shome to a nuclear plant -- is home to a nuclear plant that employs near 700 people. nuclear energy is a secure energy source that plays a vital role in a responsible, all-of-the-above energy policy. mr. davis: it is the biggest provider of reliable, efficient, clean energy and it provides on-demand energy 24/7. the recent record cold temperatures in the midwest show the importance of energy diversification. many of my constituents saw steep increases in their electric bill. while pipes froze and transportation became difficult because of iced roads and bridges, nuclear power remained consistent. i worry that things could have become worse if nuclear power wasn't able to fill the gaps where needed. this is why i stand here today in support of nuclear energy and all of my constituents and the hardworkin
care reform, one of the authors of this bill, mr. waxman, the ranking member of energy and commerce, from california. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized. mr. waxman: i thank the gentleman for yielding to me. the truth of the matter is no matter how many votes the republicans cast to repeal the affordable care act, and no matter how many distortions they spread about the law, there are some facts they cannot change. they cannot change the fact that because the affordable care act nobody in america can ever again be denied health insurance because they have a pre-existing condition. they cannot change the fact that a woman can never be charged more than a man for the same coverage. they cannot change the fact that a family will never again be left without coverage just because their child's hospital bills got too high. these facts are stubborn. they are inconvenient for my republican colleagues, so they ignore them and they deny them. republicans have voted or will today 50 times to try to take away the basic security and freedom guaranteed by the aff
-of-the-above energy strategy. it's part of our focus on the floor this week, in fact. because developing our own resources just doesn't bring jobs home, it strengthens america abroad. last month the energy and commerce committee released a report that says, and i'll quote, by becoming a natural gas exporter, the u.s. can you is plant the influence of other -- supplant the influence of other importers like russia and iran while strengthening our allies and trading partners around the world. the key word in that statement is can. we can is up plant russia's influence but -- supplant russia's influence but we won't as long as we have to contend with the energy department's achingly slow approval process. as we speak, the administration is sitting on 24 applications for natural gas exports, it's approved just six in the last three years. this amounts to a de facto ban that only emboldins vladimir putin, allowing him to sell large quanltities of natural gas to -- quantities of natural gas to our allies. the american people have seen the threat that putin puts forward. they know something must be done
the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is

exports travel through the pipelines that go through ukraine, so how is energy factoring in this equation? >> it's vital. we're being aggressive because we don't depend on russian energy, where as the germans, this is a big debate. maybe this is a positive thing that the russians depend on a trade with europe and why putin's backing off now, or does it make the europeans dependent on russia? >> it's fot really an option for russia to stop the exports. that would be self defeating economically. >> true, but we were talking earlier, on monday the russian stock market lost $70 billion, at the same time, vladimir putin spent $50 billion on the sochi olympics, so i think it's the economic costs making it pause now. >> at some point it's got to have enough of an impact on the russian economy that he's sitting up and taking notice. >> yes, that's why the u.s. is pushing harder for economic sanctions. i think the economic issues make him pause. he's unlikely to push further into ukraine with his troops, but if he feels he's going to lose his warm water port in crimea, which this is all about, he

and energy expansion cancelling preparations for a g8 summit in sochi, russia are temporary and could be reveersed. if the united states and its western allies hit russia with economic sanctions or deny moscow access to global financial networks and key international bank accounts the damage to the russian economy could be longlasting and it could put u.s.-russian relations in the deepest, most confrontational stance they've been in the entire obama presidency. some believe putin has overplayed his hand and will not fire shots in crimea and will not move his forces into less friendly parts of ukraine. with canada great britain, france, and germany all against russia moscow's own status in the g8 is also in jeopardy. these nations are also preparing, along with the united states, an economic package to rescue the transitional and fragile government in ukraine itself. the united states doesn't need or want to punish russia necessarily for this violation of the international law. it wants moscow to back off and ease the tensions. right now, as elizabeth palmer ju
